Dior Le Vernis Sailor is one of three shades in the new limited edition Voyage Transatlantique collection. I have heard this was a Saks only collection but I just bought it at Nordstrom, so that’s obviously not true!
This was color I knew I needed to own as soon as I started seeing swatches of it. It’s just a perfect, rich, bright, intense blue. No way I could pass it up.
The color doesn’t come by itself though, like I was expecting. It comes in a little box with a set of clear “CD” nail stickers and a nail file. Unfortunately the stickers didn’t really work that great because they are a little thick and don’t lie completely flat on my rather curved nails. But it’s a cute idea anyway.
Sailor is a vivid blue shade with a creme/jelly finish. It also has some hidden shimmer in it which you do see under certain lighting, like above. I don’t even care about the shimmer because the blue is so beautiful by itself. The formula is really great as well. Just two coats covers really nicely and perfectly.
Here was my attempt at the sticker. It just won’t lie flat, darnit.
Overall: For me, this was a must-have shade, despite the price. I know many people won’t pay this much for a shade, especially in a smaller bottle but I definitely will if I think it’s worth it.
Availability: Nordstrom, Saks.
